I've been unravelling some of the dependencies of nvvp, and should have 
a patch for #761363 ready soon.
There are also some changes to the packaging I'd like to propose, so I 
think it's best if I attach patches to the list so they can be discussed.
We should be able to upload 6.0 to unstable soon.

As far as 6.5 goes, I've had a look at the available downloads for 
6.5.14 [1]; currently there's no .run file for 32-bit ARM although there 
is for 64-bit ARM, and there's a note that the 32-bit ARM download is 
"NOT to be used for L4T (Jetson TK1)".  There are also downloads for 
6.5.19 [2].
Let's get 6.0 fix and uploaded and then see how far we can get with 6.5 
before the jessie freeze.
